It is a shame that so many people were missing on Monday because it was one of the days I had allocated to 'just dance' rather than spending time practicing our steps or getting the hands just right... and didn't they do well. We introduced 'Waltz Country Dance', renewed our acquittance with 'The Dream Catcher', pranced through 'Postie's Jig' and still had time for 'De'il Amang the Tailors' and 'The Ring of Brodgar'. Well done to all concerned, and thanks too to our 'helpers', we literally couldn't do it without you. Tuesday was an equally successful night, lots of fun and lots, and lots of dances. We even managed two sets up for Mairi's Wedding - not the most successful dance of the night but eliciting a spontaneous round of applause from the ladies behind the bar! - and perfection only comes from practice, and giving everyone the chance to have a go now means we'll have more brilliant dancers on the floor at the ball. We actually had time available to complete the whole programme, but by mutual consent we skipped the final dance - exhaustion had finally set in! We have to say 'goodbye' now to some of our swallows but we will hopefully be saying 'hello' to others next week to keep the ball rolling!
Finally, FYI we are planning a 'Members Meeting' - hopefully for a Saturday in early April, as a purely social get together for dancers, chatters, beginners and Tuesday nighter's, and as an opportunity to catch up with those who can't necessarily make the dance sessions, but keep an interest in the Group and it's events.
